200+ bills sitting on Harry Reid's desk (or in his trash can) waiting for a senate vote...
No! Obummer has his pen, and his phone to take action, and ONLY calls on the house
on things he don't WANT to do....
He won't even call Mexico to get our Marine back, but will trade 5 Taliban leaders
for a deserter, which we've not heard the report from the DOD...
Spending countless taxpayer dollars in his democrappic fundraising, vacations, and golf games!
Even Bush stopped playing Golf when the "Optics" would have looked bad...
Hut off a head, and Obummer can't wait to hit the links!
Bush would have shut down travel from ebola ridden countries, and sent those troops
to the places where people are getting their heads chopped off for being people!
That's OK... I understand you liberals would have let the Jews die in Germany too!
$17 TRILLION in debt... don't try to tell me that Obummer was good for this nation... you lose!
Good day!
One of the main reasons you have Obama as president right now is because, he gave healthcare to those who could not afford it. Yeah, I'm sure the rich republicans are pissed because it messed up their insurance coverage, and that their insurance is not accepted everywhere anymore. Have you ever had to go to the ER because you couldn't afford to go to the doctor? What about not being able to afford medication? Or, what if you don't have a good paying job that gives you health care benefits, or are not a veteran with VA benefits, then you "WERE" screwed. There are a whole lot more poor people than there are rich. And those poor people are tired of the good old boys club. I was a republican for years. Until I couldn't get work, healthcare, medication, afford food, etc. I am a male, so I couldn't have 10 kids and retire as a welfare millionaire. The system was set up so that the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. Now we are all in the same boat. Now the ôRepublican / Tea Party members, get to experience some of the same crap the rest of us have had to go through for years. Having screwed up health care, or no healthcare at all. A declining job market that, started before Obama. A government that, would rather fight among each other, IE the Republicans and Democrats, rather than work together to help "THE PEOPLE". That is why you have the President you have now. Not because he's black. But because he wanted to change everything from the way it had been. Had Republicans reached out to help the working poor / me, so that I could prosper in life rather than scrape by "Barely" then I would not have jumped ship. It's called self-preservation. You did this to yourselves. And if Republican Eric Cantors, HUGE Primary Loss to a relatively unknown Tea Party member isn't a message to Republicans, I don't know what is. There are about to be a lot of changes about to happen in the next couple of years. People are tired of the stalemates in congress, and the lack of progress. The same old CRAP! If you do what you have always done, then you will get what you always got. That's why strict Conservatives have never progressed. They want the same. They want to live in the past. They have not adapted to a changing environment with changing needs. They have become obsolete. Some have adapted to accept new models and ideas without giving up their fundamental beliefs. The rest are like old rusting cars in a field. People just wish that they would rust away, be towed away or something. They may have been good cars in their time, but now times have changed. Clinging to that desperate thought that, maybe one day they will pull that car out of the field and fix it up. But still it sits there year after year, just getting in worse shape, eventually, beyond repair. This is what extreme Conservatism and hard line Republicans and Democrats have done to the system and to us.

I never claimed to be an Obamaphile. Unlike you, I was skeptical of him in 2008. I merely said that he wasn't and couldn't be responsible for the practices prior to the 2007 fiscal meltdown (that has cost us $17 trillion dollars, as you point out) and named a couple things that were.. You seem to have some real issues with rabid dog syndrome there, pal. Maybe you should go pray for healing over a Bible or something.
Now see....
If you had watched "FOX" News... you'd know it was the Liberal Democraps that made the housing market bust by lowering restrictions for home loans, and letting people with no hope of repayment have them...

Revelation 20

20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is
the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and
set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no
more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after
that he must be loosed a little season.
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was
given to them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded
for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who
had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had
received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

You believe what you want to believe, but as I've said on many occasions, belief does not make reality - and your Fox sound bites on this matter are still largely intentionally biased inaccuracies and falsehoods choreographed to sell air time by appealing to airheads and conspiracy freaks. We've already been over the industry impact of the G-L-B Act, qualifying restrictions of the CRA, Red Line solvency, the market balloon and corporate lending practices at length twice in the last three years. You didn't pay any attention then and it's a sure bet you wouldn't understand or accept it if I laid it all out for you AGAIN. You have little room to be petulant about learning or practicing right from wrong.

So you say but cannot demonstrate. The fact of the matter is that every word attributed to Jesus was written down after he was dead, and half of what was written he would probably have denied. Even so, Jesus was a product of his time, when ignorance made the Earth the center of a very small "creation" governed by magic, ethereal spirits and mysterious beings. Doubtlessly, he thought the entire disk shaped (chug) Earth had been flooded in 40 days and that a serpent spoke, too. You can protest and boast religious >belief<, but in >reality< those things are myths.

It was logically obvious they could not. Were it the case that real estate always increases in value (as was touted by realtors and lenders) a 100 year old house would be worth ten times that of a comparable new one. Housing values were artificially inflated and the ruse was not sustainable.

It was more than a tiny percent but you're right it was not that simple. What it basically amounts to is the average human being down to his very core is as stupid as your average monkey. God fucking knows they can't be expected to learn from the great stock market crash and the resulting Great Drpression beginning in 1929, or other such examples from history. But hell it was less than a decade since the big dotcom crash of the late nineties. Yeah most humans are capable of learning one or two things that seem to put us on a higher level than apes but subtract that factor and the average human is so fucking stupid it's actually kind of sad. And given the chance tomorow it would happen again. And again. And again. And again.

Then there was the S&L crisis and Enron. Not only do we not learn from our past mistakes, we're "progressively" getting more lenient in doling out consequences to the suits and ties that cause them.

There probably was a Jesus, but there's no way of knowing for sure what he actually said or done. You're just taking other people's words as written down, but you don't have the ability or credibility to vouch for them, which may have been symbolic statements, half-truths, purposeful misrepresentations, and outright lies. Or just plain wrong, like the guy who called Cyrenus the governor of Syria when Christ was born even though he didn't become Governor of Syria until many years after Christ's birth. You can believe what you want but don't expect to use statements of faith in a debate and expect anybody to take you seriously.

Air is real. You can feel it, you can see how it effects other things, you can "catch" it in a jar and examine its properties with the proper instruments. Elohim, God and Allah only exists within the pages of religious codices. Those stories tell you that your deity is real and that you must believe. A child can have faith that Santa Claus or Big Bird are real because that's what he's been led to believe. I'm sorry to break it to you, but believing what Mrs. Bighair told you in Sunday School doesn't make it so.
